In order to help stop the spread of COVID-19, The City of Calgary has temporarily suspended all Seniors Services Home Maintenance housekeeping services. This program change will affect current Seniors Services Home Maintenance housekeeping clients, as well new applicants interested in housekeeping services as the program will not be accepting any new clients during this temporary suspension. Snow removal services will be unaffected by these changes and will continue to be provided.
Basic yard work
Includes lawn cutting, trimming and raking.
Due to the number of yard work clients served, it may take up to 3 weeks between each lawn cutting service. Clients are responsible for providing access to green bins for disposal of clippings, leaves, pine cones, etc.
- Snow and ice removal from sidewalks adjacent to client's property
- Snow and ice removal from client's front walk including steps to the front door
- Snow and ice removal from the client's back walk, from the back or side door to the garbage bin and/or garage door
Unfortunately the Work Crews are unable to remove snow from additional sidewalks, driveways or patios/decks due to time constraints.
Seniors Services Home Maintenance will shovel snow as quickly as possible however, it may take up to 5 working days between services. If the Work Crew is unable to remove stubborn ice build-up, they will lay gravel, salt or a mix depending on the client's preference.
Routine interior housework tasks are provided once per month. Tasks include: dusting, vacuuming, washing inside windows, cleaning the kitchen and bathroom (stove, fridge, bath and toilet) and floors. Some spot cleaning of walls may also be done.
Clients are required to supply the appropriate cleaning supplies and equipment.
